If you’ve ever wanted to know more about the background of Progression, why I make these videos, my now obsession with foiling and the coaching I’m now doing, then you might like this podcast episode from The Kitesurf365 Podcast. Thanks Adrian for having me on.

Foiling Clinic Tomorrow Afternoon
(Wed 18th June)
Anyone interested in improving their foiling we are hoping to run a foiling clinic in the afternoon. The forecast looks good with 15-20 knot SW wind. The aim is to start around 2/3pm and it will run for 3-4 hours. Great opportunity to learn/improve your gybes and tacks.
We'll run another clinic on Thursday afternoon if people are interested.
If you're still a beginner foiler then still get in contact as we may run a couple of beginner sessions too on one of the days.
You can indicate which days you are free using the following poll:
If you haven't been in contact with us before then please follow up with an email so we have your contact details and can chat about what you are trying to learn.
Day 2 was a productive day for the Egypt foiling crew, we've ironed out the niggles that were holding everyone back and we're now full steam ahead with everyone's Progression. We've had some first runs, first foot changes and first toeside foiling runs. 3.5days to go with a great forecast ahead. Thanks to Planet Travel Holidays for getting us all here smoothly, KiteHouse for hosting us in style on the beach and The Breakers for keeping us well fueled and staying in comfort.
Day 1 for camp 1 of 2019 in Soma Bay. We've got wind and butter flat conditions. The first day is all about the little things, ensuring kit is tuned correctly and working on tweaking the basics to ensure progression happens naturally in the most efficient way possible. Have you played around with your stance and equipment to see how it affects your riding?
Such a great couple of days last week when we had the first British Kitesports Association's Foiling Instructors course and we now have 10 new foiling instructors ready to get more of you on the water foiling this summer.
It was a pleasure to work on this with Andy Gratwick and the BKSA, helping to deliver this new program and get some amazing feedback and discussions going from everyone on the course. It's been exciting to see how kitefoiling has gone from a pretty hard, challenging learning curve to something that most independent kiteboarders can have a go at. Myself and Danny have learnt a lot over the past two years when we first started filming the Kitefoiling Volume 1 Collection of how-to videos and then started our Live Coaching clinics and camps last year. It's great to share all that knowledge and now have this awesome network of schools able to get out there and teach kite foiling safely.
No doubt we'll be getting more instructors trained up but for now, if you want to learn to kite foil there really is no better time to give it a go... And if you want to improve your foiling the UK has several Advanced Foiling Coaches (Danny & I being two them) who can help you with the next stages of your foiling progression.

Viana do Castelo is a spot that’s getting a name for itself on the European kite scene with perfect foiling flats and rolling swells it really has it all! It’s also our chosen spot to head to for our Portugal camp in September with FeelViana hosting us in style right on the spot and Planet Kitesurf ensuring all your bookings run smoothly. Danny has written this post about the spot to give you a bit more of an insight of what to expect from Viana.
Progression is with Rob Claisse and 2 others.
This version of the foiling 360 is a fun trick to learn - this drone shot should give those learning a good idea of the kite movement. One key point - keep the kite overhead through the middle of the turn, so it's pulling you up and driving forward in the wind window, allowing you to rotate around underneath whilst keeping enough weight on both your feet.
Who's learning this at the moment? Share your mistake and tips below.
